DJ Shinski, real name Steve Nyaosi, is a Kenyan-born deejay based in the United States.
DJ Shinski was born and raised in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.
Shinski relocated to America after completing his high school studies at Highway Secondary School in Nairobi in 2006. His mother had won the green card lottery allowing her to move her family to America.
He was passionate about music from a young age and started practicing his DJ skills on Virtual DJ, the popular software. Shinski also cites matatu culture in Nairobi and its appreciation for DJ mixes for steering him onto his path.
His career as a professional DJ began after he secured residency at clubs in Houston, Texas after winning a spinoff competition.
Since then, Shinski has performed around the world including in France, UK, Belgium, Canada, Kenya, Jamaica and Antigua.
He is one of the most popular DJs in Kenya thanks to his consistent mix releases cutting across genres. Stream them below.
